Posted By: Brian F. O'Leary Member News,

WoodWing—a trusted partner to the world's leading publishing brands—has joined the Book Industry Study Group (BISG), which works to promote efficiency, effectiveness, and transparency across the US book industry supply chain.

WoodWing’s flagship solutions, WoodWing Studio and WoodWing Assets, empower publishers to eliminate creative process inefficiencies and focus on strategy, storytelling, and outshining their competition. WoodWing brings a proven track record of innovation to its publishing clients. It  continues to be at the forefront of providing cutting-edge software solutions in the rapidly changing publishing landscape.

Content must be easily adaptable to fit different channels and devices. By using WoodWing Studio and WoodWing Assets, publishers can streamline the creation, distribution and monetization of their content, so they can reach their audiences and achieve the success they need. WoodWing’s commitment to quality and security is validated by its ISO/IEC 27001:2013 certification.

Today, WoodWing offers a comprehensive suite of solutions that digitally transform publishing, knowledge and document management, and content creation processes across all sectors. With these solutions, WoodWing empowers organizations to reclaim control of their publishing, document, digital asset, and quality management processes.

Reflecting on the company’s decision to join BISG, Dan Pugliese, Senior Enterprise Sales Executive at WoodWing, said: “As the leading provider of content workflow solutions, WoodWing has been looking for a partner to help us expand in the book business. BISG, the only trade association with a standing committee dedicated to workflow topics, is the perfect fit for our needs.”

BISG executive director Brian O’Leary echoed that theme: “As a trade organization, we have a long history sorting through issues related to metadata, rights, subject codes, and the supply chain. Our addition of a standing committee to consider workflow issues in 2019 closed the loop on issues related to content management, accessibility, and multi-format publishing. We’re looking forward to building on WoodWing’s capabilities to further strengthen our work in this area.”
